Advances in Radiological Imaging

Advances in Radiological Imaging

Radiological imaging or diagnostic radiology is a specialized branch of medicine that deals with imaging modalities to diagnose disease. The radiological imaging market has witnessed immense growth in the last two decades, primarily due to the introduction of newer and advanced imaging systems in mammography, radiography, MRI and PET scanning. These advancements have led to the emergence of numerous imaging modalities that can detect abnormalities in the human body and confirm the presence of disease. The scope of this research study limits itself to these four imaging systems and the innovations that have resulted in growth of each individual segment in both developed and developing regions. Each section covers a particular technology, trends and advances, key innovations and the global IP scenario. The concluding section of the research service details the opportunities that exist for key stakeholders in the radiological imaging market that includes the drivers and challenges shaping up the market, technology management strategies, an emerging technology roadmap, healthcare infrastructure and technology adoption scenario in three regions of the world – North America, Europe and BRIC nations. This research service also details some of the key projects currently funded by the NIH and the level of investments from the NIH in each of the technology segment. Finally, the section on patent analysis lists some of the key patents that have been filed in 2016 towards radiological imaging innovations.
